Day 281 | Mexico | Valladolid | Sleep-Go-Sleep

We had a big fat sleep in this morning. Well, Anthony did, more to the point – 34 hours of travel will do that to a person! LOL!

By the time we did eventually make it out of our room it was time for lunch so we headed out to Yerbabuena for a nice cruisy lunch. Towards the end of lunch the rain started in. There was enough of a gap in the rain for us to head on over to Convento de San Bernardino de Siena ie the convent for a bit of a nosey around. It was very beautiful. There was a heap of information about the cenote on the grounds which had only been excavated in recent years with some old guns and other items being discovered.

Back at the house we rested for a bit, or in Anthony’s case a lot and as he had an afternoon siesta. After he woke up we then headed into the main part of the city (Parque Francisco Canton) for a bit of a look around and all the shops along the way.

We then headed to Cafeina for a couple of beers and then we headed back to the convent where they have a video presentation of the history of Valladolid, it was so beautiful and done so well.
